For new maps, we have a directory on the same FTP-Server where NIV was during the testing phase:

http://ja2.h758491.serverkompetenz.net/NewMaps/

It's awfully empty at the moment, so if you want your new maps uploaded there, drop me a line Wink


You're not kidding. There's nothing there!

Given how involved you are with all the mod projects, Starwalker, I don't know how full your PM box is, so I'll put this up here instead. :crazy:

I've bashed together a new D2 SAM site using the "Queen's SAM" tileset - it's not the frakkin' nightmare that was the Wildfire 'bridge-and-island', but I'd like to think it's a little more challenging (and realistic) than the original, even if my (super-well-equipped) mercs blow through the defenders like they're not there. :bluegrin: If you've got the time & interest, shoot me a PM and let me know where I should e-mail the .dat file. :cheers:

(Sadly, it won't come with a radarmap .sti, since I don't have the foggiest clue how to create one. Unless there's a mug volunteer out there who has the skills and inclination to correct that? :crazy:)

You should send me a PM. For some yet unknown reason I seem unable to start a PM myself...

PM sent. Wink

While I'm here, though: has anyone ever had occasion to extract the map from the JA2 demo and update it into a playable sector for 1.13 - perhaps as a substitute Estoni? Even with Gabby and Dynamo constrained to 'other duties' by the current state of the quest system, it'd be a *blast* to retake that factory again - especially with the current state of gear and game-mechanics. All we'd need is the map and a little tweak to Garrisons.xml.... :devilaugh:

(Yes, I'm feeling a little nostalgic at the moment... but c'mon, folks: I'll lay good money that I am NOT the only denizen of the Bear's Pit who played that demo so many times he could clock it in his sleep - without taking so much as a scratch. :luckystrike:)

For that matter, has anyone ever considered completely overhauling the entire demo to 1.13 standards? Would our understanding with TalonSoft/SirTech etc. even permit that? Or would it be too much trouble for too little return? :compsmash:

Another query relevant to this thread: is AZAZEL still about? I've been tweaking with the .xmls to fit with his "1.13add_maps.zip", which I've recently (re-)discovered on my HDD... and for some distressing reason, the interesting-looking radarmap he created for sector A1 doesn't seem to have a corresponding .dat file. At least, not in *my* copy of the .zip file. :bawling:

Does anyone else have a copy of his A1.dat map?

People would not need third party sites to share their maps if they used what I told about above...

They just need to send me their mappacks, and I can upload them to that site.

Thanks for the recent interest. I've been working off and on with some wilderness sectors and thinking up of more tilesets I can make by combining the available pics and picking the ones needed for the template theme.

First post is edited. Please make any requests or suggestions!

Demoville should definitely be added to 1.13. The game is in need of a staging area to prepare/level up before the Drassen counter-attack which is *way* too brutal for being so early in the game. Plus, it's an "official" map, so it's OK. Cool

Can you try to make some maps with a bigger size than normal using the big map editor? We need some big maps for testing.

Or the same one in a better format?

Well, I've actually been working on some sectors (I can't seem to get them to load in certain mods though).

I really actually want to run a campaign setting in something along the lines of a snowy landscape in the northern parts. Always playing in a forest or swamp as the main landscape outside of urban areas is ... a bit boring to me now. Green, Tan, Brown could do with some white, no?

try to locate a copy of snap's tileset add-on. It adds UB tilesets to 1.13, you can use them in the 1.13 editor normally. Or have a look at other mods. RR, FFF-MP, vengeance all have their snow tiles and snow maps.

There is an HTML version in Russian with the file name armap401base.zip you can find it here.

You can probably search on Google and find more stuff. There used to be a good english map on the old JAG Web site. You can probably find additional stuff by searching for "Arulco Map" (since arulco won't be use by other things).
